My brutal emotional and physical jet lag from the Australian tour has finally passed over. The kangaroo jerky, however, remains. I spent a bunch of today sourcing out a backing band of Pittsburgh musicians for a movie that’s shooting on location there in January. It’s a teen thriller featuring Mischa Barton (from the Fox TV series ‘The O.C.’) in a sorta hot-teenage twist on Kathy Bates’ sadistic character in ‘Misery.’ My role is ‘Lead Singer at the Fort Pitt Bar.’ I think Mischa’s character steals the microphone away from me while I’m performing. Or I hand it to her. Anyhow, I’m digging putting this band together. I moved away from Pittsburgh eight years ago. The film’s called ‘Homecoming.’
